Proudly presenting Æonis' first contest participation ever!

We sent one of our most experienced architects out to please the eyes of the contest judges with a magnificent garden structure called Solitude.
What Steve tried to recreate was a place to escape the often exhausting reality and conciliate with nature to regain energy and the strength to go on with tasks, especially in difficult life situations.Therefore, his plot is conceived as a garden, containing both a nice fountain and a pavillon, for either some relaxation or to drink some tea. The main building is a large hall with big windows to let much light in, when one can place plants in the hall and use it for studies or something similar.
The actual reason to build such an refugee was the untimely death of Impératrice Belle in December 1754, when she suffered an unknown severe illness and finally died on 17th December in the arms of her loving husband, Empereur Steve. One of his first orders soon after her death was the construction of this small hideout just to escape all the courtly intrigues and of course, the reigning work. The latter wasn't really a problem, as the parliament under Chancelier Michel was able to guide the nation through this difficult period, as the Impératrice was highly popular even amongst the poor and thus resulting in a national lethargy and mourning.
Even today, 9 years later, the Empereur is often visiting his hideout, nowadays together with his children to enjoy the peace outside of the palace and the capital.

The last portrait of the whole imperial family, painted by court portraitist Sommerhall in August 1754.

You kind of broke two rules here with using a texture pack and possibly using helpers which is against the rules

i think the second one is no problem as this is a build from only one of their builders but yeah the no texturepack rule applies to all screenshots and not only the 75% unedited ones

Well actually it states: You must use the default texture pack. This is a build contest, not a texturing contest. Judges will also be reviewing your builds in the default texture pack.

I did not break this rule (atleast from my point of view), as I used the default pack to build it and it looks in default like as I wanted it to look like. Furthermore, as they say, judges also use the default pack, which is fine to me when they use it in reviewing process. It says nothing about the screenshots, whilst the rule with 75% unedited ones is still given.

well but the these two points [no texturepack,75% unedited] are made independently as two seperate rules . so if it was meant as you say it could be meant it would make no sense to seperate these two.
besides all this "you broke this rule" its a great build btw
